Asia-Pacific Track

In the last decade, universities and research laboratories in the Asia-Pacific region have made significant progress and contribution to the KDD research. Taking the advantage of the opportunity that KDD 2012 will be held in the Asia-Pacific region, the conference will feature a new program of Asia-Pacific Track. The purpose of the Track is to promote KDD research achievements and to elevate the attention and momentum of the KDD research in this region. The program will feature KDD research results and projects in universities and industrial laboratories in this region. Prominent researchers will be invited to give talks on the program. Speakers are recommended by the program committee formed for the Track.
